It's already bad. I'm honestly not sure how much worse it's going to get. Notice that I didn't say couldn't get worse. It can always get worse. I know this. And thus I refuse to tempt fate. Superstitious -- probably. But magic exists. So does karma, and karma can be a bitch.

Major magical artifacts are big business and valuable as hell. Even the express courier companies won't insure them for full value. They're just too likely to be stolen.

I could still see the expression on that woman's face, the naked fear in her eyes, could see and hear the pulse pounding at her throat. It made my mouth water.

My vampire senses heightened and I could hear the squeals of rodents and soft gasping noises that reminded me of the way it sounded when someone tried to scream without drawing a deep breath. My teeth lengthened, saliva filling my mouth. Now was so not the time to go to the bat side.

There is one particular ex-boyfriend with whom it ended very badly because I was young and an idiot. I'd love to have several drinks with him and find out how his life has turned out and apologize for having hurt us both way back when. Corny, I know, but true.

All power, including the collar, is no more than a tool: like the knives you wear, or the guns so favored in this time. In the hands of an ethical person with training and skill they serve a noble and useful purpose. They protect the innocent, keep the world safe. It is in the hands of the untrained and unskilled, or morally corrupt, that power becomes dangerous.

Hope's good. I like hope. Well, then, I'll hope everything will be okay here, and I hope he calls you, because it'll make you happy. And hey, sue me--you're my friend. I like it when you're happy.

Every time a writer creates a character with a particularly troubled background (or a kinky sexual bent) it seems that somebody in the "real world" assumes that the writer is working from personal experience.
